    I like that use of Wyatt Earp as a descriptor.

    Did you choose Wilde Bill's double coils?

    Would have been perfect but could only get “Doc” Barden’s. Won em in a card game at Rosie’s Saloon. The other guy drank too much Amber Whiskey.

    I hope it’s okay to share some fun facts. One inspiration to configure Belle this way is Wyatt Earp gun model used @ the OK Corral. A Smith & Wesson 3. Would like to share a photo of that model. The gun is from the 1870’s and not a reproduction. An Original New York engraved Smith & Wesson.

    .44 caliber Deluxe. The last sound you would hear in your life. It must have been Quite the tonal experience. You would rock on your feet then fall dead.
    The price of admission to one of his concerts was rather steep. Fortunately, a Telecaster will just twang your ears off.

    That's a good example of a guitar that is visually deluxe without looking like it just had a bunch of eye-catching crap added, like crap on a cake. All the upscale parts fit with each other and the overall look. I don't even like fancy Teles, nor do I like pine (at all, at all) but this is the gorgeous exception!

    Welcome to the Kirn Club and TDPRI. That is absolutely beautiful. There are a number of Kirn owners here; including myself.
